Mission Statement

Mane In Heaven is a recognized 501(3)non-profit organization that provides therapeutic benefits to disabled and able-bodied children and adults through animal-assisted activity and therapy visits with miniature horses leading to improved outcomes of physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Description

Our all-volunteer staff and our adorable "minis" visit nursing homes, schools, hospitals, libraries, veteran facilities, etc.

What is "A Visit?" It includes watching, petting, brushing, hugging and loving our minis. We provide activity visits (fun, promotional) and therapy visits (goal-directed) based on the needs of those we visit. The horse-person interaction is a source of joy due to the unconditional love of our gentle horses.

Why miniature horses? WHY NOT! Miniature horses make phenomenal comfort animals and are very kind and gentle with the proper training. People continuously comment about the gentle and low-key nature of our horses.
